    Grey Just Designed a Bicycle That Has the Symptoms of MS

    This a terrible bike to ride.

    Those are the first words you'll hear in "This Bike Has MS," a campaign by Grey Australia for nonprofit MS to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis ahead of the MS Melbourne Cycle in early March.

    This a terrible bike to ride. 

    Those are the first words you'll hear in "This Bike Has MS," a campaign by Grey Australia for nonprofit MS to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis ahead of the MS Melbourne Cycle in early March. 

    Multiple sclerosis is an exceptionally weird and annoying affliction. It's the most common autoimmune disorder to hit the central nervous system, resulting in all kinds of wonkiness: Take all the tiny icks that result when you've sat too long on your foot, had an off-season allergy attack, walked too long up a hill or haven't eaten in a while. Combine them, magnify them by 10, and try living that way.

    You may feel tired, randomly numb or dizzy. You'll feel pain or have trouble thinking, managing emotions or even walking properly. There's also insatiable itching just under the surface of your skin, tremors, and hearing and vision loss. The symptoms can happen in spasms over the course of your life, or just get progressively worse. 

    It's notoriously also difficult to diagnose—and worse still, to take seriously. The ad points out, "With a disease like MS, it's hidden. People just don't get it."
